House of Trouble is an artistic sanatorium. For the muse plagued with a sort of delightful artistic attention deficit disorder.

All items are designed and made by me. I draft my own patterns, draw all my own sketches and plans, emboss, sculpt, bead, letter, embroider . . .

Please feel free to oggle as my muse (Persephone or "Percy") and I document our artistic therapy sessions at

Thank you for peeping into House of Trouble and do come again!

*Poseable Figures are not intended for rough play or very small children. They are absolutely intended for gentle day-dreaming and quiet imaginating!

I like custom orders; my muse is more finicky. Between the three of us, I'm sure we can work something out. ;)
